Review: City of Women

City of Women City of Women by David R. Gillham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"City of Women" has been on my list to read for a while. I finally got to it and discovered a literary gem. "City of Women" takes place in Berlin in 1943. A German woman named Sigrid lives two lives. One of a wife waiting for the return of her husband from the Russian front and living a German war time day-to-day life. Another of a passionate woman who has an affair with a Jewish man and gets involved with helping those who are wronged by this horrifying war.

David R. Gillham delivers a book that is raw at its core and does not spare you the hideous details of inhuman actions. The characters are honest in their delivery and communicates their feelings effectively. This book is also a story of courage and hope, and a story of good prevailing over evil. A must read!
